Join the Howard Brown Health Vernita Gray Council and Aging Services program as we build community in a safe (virtual) space, making connections, and finding friends.

GATHER: LGBTQ INTERGENERATIONAL SOCIAL EVENINGS
Third Thursday of every month
5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Are you looking to meet new people? Do you want to connect with a diverse group of LGBTQ+ community members? We do too and hope you will join us for a complimentary virtual event hosted by Howard Brown, The Care Plan, and Renewal Care Partners.
A few years ago, we were inspired by the SAGE Table initiative to bring older and younger members of LGBTQ+ communities together for a meal to talk about the experiences of aging and share personal histories. Our three organizations were so fed by the conversation and connection that we started a quarterly intergenerational event. In 2020, we moved the events virtual and to a monthly schedule. We invite you to help us take this initiative virtual, make meaningful connections, and widen your circle. We hope you will join us!
